Chris Young while working as conductor, pianist and session musician for some of the music industry's biggest names has now released his first CD as more than a sideman. His Oscar/Art/Bill leanings have kept crowds from all over Ohio always coming back for more in clubs and concerts. Recorded live at Bexley's Monk in Columbus Ohio, the session on this CD is "straight off the tape", with no editing or processing.(Or rehearsal) While not technically perfect (that's no fun) it is an energetic romp through some great jazz classics. As one noted jazz critic said, "It sure is good to hear great musicians that aren't afraid to just PLAY!" Now with major air play in Russia and all over Europe Chris is making plans for more tours and concert dates. To purchase CDs click the "Other Homepage" button.
